Is it possible for emboxer to read a card from the viking 4 D usb reader writer box? I have just spent 10 hours trying to get to read and write my designs. I am using window 7 as my operating system. Really looking forward to mac friendly embroidery software.

Thank you for your help.

No, Viking/Pfaff uses a different type of hardware.

Only the boxes listed on the Emboxer page will work. But your current cards should work in those boxes, so its not all bad.
Look for a sale on the Ultimate Box for your Viking. I'm guessing you have a Rose or #1+?
I think Allbrands has them reasonably priced.

Thank you for your quick response. That maybe the route to take.

I'll take a look on the websites.

Does Emboxer work on the Windows platform? I have the Ultimate box for my Rose and would like to send designs to it thru Essentials on my Win 7 desktop. laptop or Windows 8.1 tablet.

No Emboxer is only for the Mac platform.
You would use the Ultimate Box software for Windows to send to your card.
